Transformed by Grief

“Don’t let anyone take your grief away from you. You deserve it, and you must have it. If you had a broken leg, no one would criticize you for using crutches until it was healed. If you had major surgery, no one would pressure you to run a marathon next week. Grief is a major wound. It does not heal overnight. You must have time and the crutches until you heal.” – Doug Manning

“Healing does not mean going back to the way things were before.” – Ram Dass

“Grief denied often brings about bitterness towards life and others. Dealt with grief often brings about more compassion  for life and others.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom

“Grief refuses to be ignored; it’s grip becomes even tighter and more painful if one tries to ignore and/or run from it. The pressure won’t begin to weaken until one is willing to confront it face-to-face.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom
